A freshman Democrat opposes House Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, is expected to switch to the Republican Party and is telling colleagues his intentions. Rep. Jeff Van Drew was 1 of 2 Democrats who voted against formalizing the impeachment inquiry, and announced earlier this month that he would vote against all articles of impeachment on the House floor.
The move, a symbolic boost for Trump, won't change the outcome of the vote that would see Trump as only the third president in American history to be impeached. The expected switch comes as Van Drew struggles in New Jersey politics. Internal polling has shown he was losing major support from Democrats in the district.
(Could be the Kiss of Doom in New Jersey!)
